A Famine of Grace

Jarel Robinson Brown

Is my life worth living? Am I loved? No human being should have to ask themselves these questions, but many Black and Queer Christians have done so and continue to do so, not least in response to a church which frequently divides God’s children into those who can bask immediately in the joy of God’s love, and those it treats as if they were beyond God’s grace.

Jarel Robinson-Brown says there is a famine of grace in the church. He and Paula Gooder will be in conversation about what grace is, the deadliness of bad theology, narratives of inclusion and exclusion in the church and in the Bible, and where wisdom and justice can be found.

The Revd Jarel Robinson-Brown is an Anglican minister who has served in churches in Wales and London and as a Chaplain at King’s College London. He is the author of Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer: The church and the famine of grace (SCM Press 2021) and is the Vice-Chair of OneBodyOneFaith.

Dr Paula Gooder is a renowned Biblical Scholar and Canon Chancellor of St Paul’s Cathedral. Her many bestselling books include Heaven, Body, and Phoebe: A Story.
